The statistics menu can play a crucial part in helping managers make their transfer decisions in Fantasy Premier League.

In your "Transfers" page, the menu is set to “Total points” by default.

But clicking on the “Sorted by” dropdown allows managers to see the players who have scored the most goals or produced the most assists, clean sheets and bonus points.

There are a number of other handy filters that can help managers identify their next targets.
